Pia Sundhage is stepping down as U.S. coach and will take over Sweden's team after leading the Americans to back-to-back gold medals and their first World Cup final in 12 years. The announcement of her departure Saturday came just a few hours before the U.S. women began their "victory tour" with an 8-0 victory against Costa Rica in the hometown of star Abby Wambach.
